it all. >> reporter: good morning to you. before president obama begins his vacation here in martha's vineyard, he will stop in orlando to speak with disabled veterans. edward snowden has everyone talking today. it comes after a news conference on friday announcing snowden played a role in the timing that he wants to enact new measures to enact the surveillance program. the president announced working with congress to reform the nsa program that collects telephone data mandating more transparency by the court. creating a team of private citizens including activists to review the program. chuck todd asked president obama if snowden is a leaker or a patriot. here is what he had to say. take a listen. >> i don't think he was a patriot. as i said in my opening remarks, i called for a thorough review of our surveillance operations before mr. snowden made the leaks. >> reporter: now president obama also, for the first time, addressed his decision not to meet with russia's president, vladimir putin on the sidelines of the g-20 summit. a number of factors went into that decision, including
